A giant “ship in the bottle” mounted on the Italian Alps!
Bono Sistemi completed on March 2010 the start-up of a biomass 28 ton/hour superheated steam boiler, main item of a power plant able to generate 6,8 MW electricity burning virgin wood in Fusine, Lombardy - Italy.
This is the result of a two years contract developed in partnership with an Italian EPC contractor for the final Swiss customer Holcim Group.
The boiler itself represents for Bono Sistemi a successful example of medium-size biomass thermal plant fully engineered “in house” and manufactured with the key supplies of Bono Energia for boiler parts, Bono Netro for the combustion system and Automata for the full control system.
The plant has been nicknamed “The Ship in the Bottle” due to the difficulties met during the engineering phase first and in the construction on site after, in order to assemble a 600-ton-weight boiler inside an existing 40-years-old
concrete factory without modifying any external volume of the plant, as required by the building authorization. A task achieved with a 12-month on-site presence of up to 10 skilled technicians of Bono Sistemi.
The assembly of this 600-ton-weight steam boiler, fired with virgin wood, was carried out at Fusine, in northern Italy
